F-427 The Einstein Intersection GOOD
The Einstein Intersection
By Samuel R. Delany
Cover by Jack Gaughan
The last book Delany wrote for Ace; and, by "coincidence," the last book he wrote before his brains became scrambled and he began to crank out such trash as Dhalgren. A sad coda to the early career of a writer who could have been the best of them all!
It's far, far in the future of Earth (though echoes of our present day constantly redound through the story). Our Universe has collided with another, with different physical laws, and both have been altered. Humanity has left the husks of their bodies behind and gone forth to explore the cosmos as beings of pure thought. And an alien race from the new Universe has taken over the abnadoned bodies! The protagonist is Lobey, living out the legend of Orpheus against a world of alien minds in mutated bodies. Great Stuff!
True first printing, 1967. Clean bright cover with fairly heavy edge wear right side and bottom. Spine is rubbed at the base. Pages are deep tan. Binding is tight, slightly canted.
